5G Is Key to Sustainability Targets Across Industries

Glob 1
October 20, 2021 – A new study from Mobile UK concluded that interconnected 5G systems can reduce carbon emissions when they are deployed at scale. The report found this could eliminate 250M tonnes of CO² from the global energy sector by 2030, through facilitating greater use of wind and solar energy. In manufacturing, the G7’s combined CO²e output could decrease by 182M tonnes as of 2035. 5G drones and sensors, moreover, could reduce CO²e emissions in the UK’s agricultural sector by 1M tonnes by 2035.
